It was hit and miss. Can get any rain at my house thou......
I was out tilling up a 1 acre lot today , it had about 20 loads of that ole red clay hauled on it and they want me to bust it up so it can be worked that crap is hard as cement , need it to rain bad and soften it up some so I can get it done ... I kinda got caught up to kris , where I can at least catch my breath now , I was running and gunning so much last month I literally was forgetting what day of the week it was , thats because I been working 7 days a week for the last 6 weeks or so with the work load I had , I will definitely be slowing up now , my drivers just told me today that the corp is running em out of the spillway and they all had to start hauling their equipment out today ... No dirt nothing to spread I'm glad yall have all been busy though ... good to see yall posting again .
I'm doing this job for a guy, he wanted a bunch of sticks and leftover hurricane debris taken out of his backyard. Well, that was a beast, but I did it.
Now's the part I can't do. He wants me to trim his legustroms (sp?), and he sprayed them with roundup to take them back, but now they're covered in the dead plant material and he wants me to remove that. I tried the hedge trimmers and the chainsaw and I couldn't even put a dent in it. It's just a bunch of brush with dead stuff underneath it. I'm wondering if I need one of those stick chainsaws or what?
post a picture and show us what your talking about , maybe a skid w/ a grapple attachment could clean it all out ... and load it in a dump trailer and haul it all away ...
Does he want you to trim the ligustrum or remove the ligustrum? Considering that you said he sprayed them, it sounds more like a removal job (if it's not, you need to educate him NOT to spray Round-up on plants that he doesn't want to DIE). A hand-held chain saw can be used to remove them at the base of the trunks, and, depending on the size of the shrubs/trees (ligustrum can be grown in either form), may need to have the trunks ground out of removed using a machine (like David's RC-30 ). If you're trying to TRIM them, however, the type of equipment would depend on the size of the plants and the type of trimming that you're doing. If they're mature, tree forms and the owner wants to drastically cut back, I'd suggest using a polesaw (and possible a step ladder).
Hope this helps!
Thank God got just enough rain today to soften the ground up , and I was able to get it finished up , tomorrow is all day bushogging for me , and for now I get a break from the dirt until the river drops again and the spillway dries out ...
